The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has notified the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Maine CDC) of multiple individuals with gastrointestinal illness associated with recent purchases of unpasteurized/raw milk from Brandmoore Farms in Rollinsford, NH. In subsequent investigations, Maine and New Hampshire public health officials have identified multiple cases of campylobacteriosis in residents of both states. Maine has identified at least 30 cases of campylobacteriosis among Maine residents associated with this outbreak. At least two Maine residents have been hospitalized.
Maine CDC and New Hampshire DHHS are warning consumers that they should not consume Brandmoore Farm retail raw milk with best-by dates through February 5, 2021. Anyone who consumed this raw milk has an elevated risk of enteric diseases, including campylobacteriosis. Brandmoore Farm distributes raw milk from its retail store located in Rollinsford, NH, as well as at Heron Pond Farm in South Hampton, NH and Dog Rose Farm in Lee, NH. Customers who still have Brandmoore Farms raw milk are advised not to drink it and to dispose of the product. Anyone symptomatic should be evaluated by a medical provider, tested, and treated as appropriate.
